Medical billers are an important part of the healthcare revenue cycle management process. Medical billers work with medical coders to ensure that providers are paid appropriately for medical services rendered. Billers are responsible for:
- Sending information to the appropriate patients, insurance companies, doctors and medical facilities
- Processing insurance claims for billing and pursuing payment
- Following claims to ensure reimbursement is occurring
